  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Place crust on a nonstick baking sheet or pizza pan. Roll up outer edges and press lightly to form a thin band around the edge to hold in juices. Prick bottom lightly with a fork, then brush bottom with 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup. Refrigerate until ready to use. 

Working from the outside, overlap apples on prepared crust, forming them into a spiral toward the center. Keep the slices close together, as they shrink during cooking. Mix remaining 2 tablespoons syrup with butter in a small bowl, then carefully brush the mixture evenly over the top of the tart. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until tart is golden brown. Meanwhile, mix preserves with 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl and warm slightly. Cool tart briefly, then gently brush the surface all over with the apricot glaze. Serve immediately, or set aside to let cool completely.
